JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Backed by 14 years of tremendous growth, the South's favorite annual event for boat enthusiasts and riverfront festival-goers has been expanded and rechristened the Southeast US Boat Show (http://www.southeastusboatshow.com). A hotspot for Florida sightseeing and showcase for the latest and greatest in boats, the production formerly known as the Jacksonville Spring Boat Show this year features more vendors than ever and family-friendly entertainment from Fri., April 15 through Sun., April 17.
"My team and I are thrilled about the changes in the show, as are the many new vendors traveling here from greater distances to showcase products and services," comments producer Jimmy Hill of CurrentProductions.US. "The restructuring of the show, now in its 15th year, is better defining this major industry event and representing the boating lifestyle of the entire Southeast region."
Held at the Metropolitan Park & Marina on the St. John's River in downtown Jacksonville, the Southeast US Boat Show is ramping up for the big event. Vendors, attracted to the show's strategic reorganization and maximized vendor exposure and purchasing opportunities, are still registering for the showcase. The venue itself is highly convenient and adjacent to the EverBank Jacksonville Jaguar Stadium, offering paved parking to 80,000+ and a state-of-the-art fixed-floating dock marina, complete with electricity.
"You can't beat the facility of the Metropolitan Park & Marina, considering we've got everything from ample exhibit space to parking and, of course, the beautiful waterfront setting, which brings us together in the first place," Hill says.
A festival as much as a boat show, the Southeast US Boat Show includes many activities attuned to the boating lifestyle, and hundreds of new boats and quality brokerage boats will be on display and available for purchase. The show also features "Sailing Showcase East," the premier annual spring sailing exhibition on the Atlantic Seaboard, presented by sailors for sailors. This will highlight popular manufacturers plus unique sailboat designs and sailing gear.
CurrentProductions.US has made the event affordable for all. It offers extremely competitive vendor pricing, and attendee tickets are $10 per adult and free for children under 16.
